Reading & Music with Chan Poling and Lucy Michell

 From two beloved Minnesota musicians, a unique and moody collaboration in the form of a picture book for adults. Jack and the Ghost is a gothic, lyrical evocation of a shipwreck, ghosts, and living through grief in a seaside town. 

Chan Poling and Lucy Michell will entertain the audience at Drury Lane with a reading of their book Jack and the Ghost, a discussion of how it came about, and perhaps perform a few songs!
